How to Make Fire & Ice Tomatoes (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. ALTERNATE: You can substitute cherry tomatoes in lieu of regular tomatoes. If you do, it is not necessary to peel them, just cut them in half and add to the mix.
  2. Place prepared tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, and cucumber in a large bowl.

    Hand toss to combine ingredients.
  3. Combine vinegar, celery salt, mustard seed, sugar, red pepper, black pepper, salt, and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.

    Allow to boil for 1 minute; remove from heat.
  4. While liquid is still hot, pour over vegetables.

    Chill for several hours or overnight.
